Festival Co Director
Bidyut Dumra
His career in media started in 1995 in India while auditioning as a contestant for a TV quiz-show and ending up as a question writer instead. He hesitantly resolved himself to the fact that his place in the industry seemingly belonged behind the camera rather than in front of it. From TV Production he eventually made the leap to full-feature films in 2005, since then working on productions, such as, 'Salaam Namaste', 'Chak De India', 'Bachna Eh Haseeno' etc.

With corporate experience in multinational media companies, such as, Fremantle Productions and Village Roadshow, he is now a Director at Mind Blowing Films and is based in Hong Kong. He is still waiting for a breakthrough character & script to propel his acting ambitions.
